Europa League - day 5

Getafe got their Europa League campaign back on track after a 0-1 victory at Trabzonspor on Thursday afternoon, Mata turning in Kenedy’s cross early in the second half to set up a head-to-head clash with Krasnodar in two weeks’ time for the second qualifying spot. Espanyol and Sevilla tied up their place in the round of 32 in the last round of group fixtures, and both put out much changed line-ups for their ties. Espanyol extended their unbeaten run in Europe to 26 games, although they left it late before drawing 2-2 at Ferencvaros, Darder heading the equaliser from Pipa’s centre in the dying seconds. Melendo got the other goal for the Catalans after Siger had given the locals the lead, and Diego López saved a penalty before letting in a second one from Skvarka near the end. Sevilla meanwhile made it five wins out of five after a 2-0 victory over Qarabag, Bryan Gil and Dabbur getting the goals after the interval. (28.11.19)
